Hi, I did half of day one the other day (4 runs, 4 walks and took it v slowly) and the day after I noticed horrible quad pain after going to the gym and using the leg press/extensor. I can’t tell if it was the run or the gym.
A few months ago I had knee ligament surgery but I’ve been going to the gym for ages and my quad and hamstring strength is really good now so I’m a little surprised. I thought I was really careful, I warmed up, didn’t do too much and so on. I’m resting and icing but am pretty dismayed that I won’t be able to do my normal rehab schedule of walking and gym sessions for a couple of weeks.
Any advice to avoid this in future? I feel pretty dispirited about it, there’s a lot of pain and tightness in the quad when I walk.
